The High Court Sheriff standing in for Magistrate Kumba Sillah Camara, recently warned men and women against adultery saying that it was sinful and so should be denounced.

Magistrate Amina Saho Ceesay, the High Court Sheriff warned men and women against adultery and stressed that men should not flirt around to fool women to say they are not doing it. "Men and women should remain faithful to each other,"

She said. Muslims and Christians frown on adultery, she added.

Expressing her points, she said, "There is no Sharea Law in The Gambia but there is punishment for it here and here after, and the later is even greater. Men and women should be very careful. If a woman would go her way." Magistrate Amina Saho Ceesay said this is not fair and its consequences can be enormous.

This came after an accused, a Nigerian national, called Okey to explain how a Moroccan national was caught right in his bedroom with his Gambian wife with whom he has two children. He said he could not put the woman away because people will start blaming Nigerians. He said he had snapped them but his wife flushed the film in the toilet.
